The drywall goes up in the kitchen, dining area, and living room.

Walls Go Up in the Kitchen & Living Room

Drywall goes up in this Minnetonka whole house remodel! We have many spaces to tackle, and the work will vary slightly from room to room based on the design specifications for each space. The drywall installation in the kitchen and the living room around the windows accommodates wood casings (trim). The widened opening between the kitchen and living room won’t have trim, so we’ll use different drywall techniques in this area. Once the walls are installed, taped, mudded, sanded, and primed, we’ll move on to trim carpentry and painting.

A view from the living room into the future kitchen and dining shows the more open floor plan created by the widened opening between the two spaces.

A living room window has been replaced with a sliding glass door to access the side and backyards.

Our clients want additional storage, so two closets have been added to the den.

Building Walls for the Primary Bedroom, Walk-in Closet, and En Suite Bath

Upstairs we’re drywalling the framing to create a wall between the primary suite and the new en suite bath and walk-in closet. In the bathroom, the shower walls get material designed for wet conditions painted with RedGuard before tiling. The RedGuard creates a waterproof barrier under the tile. It also expands and contracts to prevent the tile from developing cracks. Niches in the wall above the vanity allow for recessed medicine cabinets.

A new wall goes up on the framing in the primary suite. Behind the wall are the new en suite bath and walk-in closet.
The drywall in the primary en suite bathroom has been taped, sanded, mudded, and primed. The insets are for the recessed medicine cabinets. Holes have been cut for the outlet and decorative sconce connections.
